    We have a 15 month-old who is great in restaurants (well-behaved, eats everything) yet we often get the "Ugh, a baby" look when we go to "nicer" restaurants with her. Here is the opposite. The hostesses remembered us after our first visit and always seat us somewhere where the highchair won't be in a high-traffic location. The food is amazing. The faro risotto is my favorite, but the beef meatballs are great and the hummus is surprisingly flavorful. There is an emphasis on quality ingredients; it isn't the cheapest lunch, but you feel you're getting what you pay for. I have never tried the desserts, so can't speak to those. It can get pretty busy during peak hours, so reservations help.

    Walk in and you wonder about the dinner reservation you made. The front is a very crowded, young, noisy bar scene. As you go to the back where the dining is located, things change. Though it will never be described as quiet and the tables are close together, the food and service more than make up for it. Had the stuffed pepper appetizer (stuffed with short ribs) that was extremely tasty. Our server was very knowledgeable about the food and wine and based on her recommendation, we had the mussels and the pork chop for the entries both were done very well. Though we didn't have it the meatball sampler looked outstanding. If you can get over the bar scene, a very reasonable find in the neighborhood for either grazing or a full meal.

    As a customer, I felt that we were not treated very well. Some if the staff were rude and unhelpful. Water had things floating in it. Food was not worth the price. Was very disappointed with what I had hoped would be a good experience.

    Came here with my parents and the food was excellent! I had the 8oz hanger steak and it was cooked and seasoned perfectly. My mom had an oyster salad that she was happy with and my dad enjoyed the bass. We shared pan roasted corn, beets with goat cheese, and broccoli rabe. All of the food was wonderful. The service was excellent with charming waitress and attentive staff on water refills, plate clearing, etc. I also really enjoyed the high booth seats that get you off of the main floor. The decor is really nice without being overly formal. They had a live band playing jazz standards that made for the perfect ambiance. I look forward to coming back!

    I like Parker and Quinn a lot. It has an upscale New York Urban Professional feel to it. I'd never be embarrassed to bring a big client to the restaurant. Food is undoubtedly of the highest quality. But always notable above and beyond the call of duty is the staff and the service. Richard Flanagan is the maestro behind the bar that sets the tone and leads a cast of all-star staff that always makes you feel like you are Vincent Chase in Entourage!

    The food and the service was very good, but it was an extremely noisy restaurant which takes away from the ambiance it could have. The bar should be separate. We like it because it is convenient while staying at the hotel, but maybe next time we will try room service.

    Visiting NY for the first time and glad we found this place. We were surprised when we walked in that I it was a loud, crowded bar scene. It's more of an after work, slightly upscale place though, with high-end scotch on the menu, etc. We were sat in a cool booth up a step in the bar, so we were able to really take in the NY scene. The food was really good; it's an a la carte kind of menu; pick a protein, pick a side deal. Someone has the skirt steak and loved it, I had the chicken and it was super most and flavorful, salads looked good too. One person had a pasta side with lamb in it that was tasty. We chose a bottle of really good Argentinean malbec to share then ended with the salted camel cheesecake which was to die for.

    The food was wonderful, but the service was awful. Our waiter spent most of his time talking with other servers. He never even checked back to see how our food was after we were served. We had to ask other wait staff for things we needed. The food was great, but not our waiter.

    I recommend making reservations! Awesome spot in the Fashion District. A far better choice than most. A great place for co-workers. Cleared out around 2pm. Hostess knew my reservation by first name and how many were in my party. The waiter did a great job and service was very quick. The food came out fresh and hot despite being a packed place. Delicious for the Fashion District area and very fair prices. A little on the noisy side but we had no problem talking away. We never felt pressured to leave and the only disappointment I had was not trying their desserts because we were in a rush. I will recommend to anyone who works in the area and return again hopefully soon.

    I work around Grand Central and there are few great casual dining spots in walking distance. My husband and I walked through the Refinery Hotel the other night and discovered this gem. Food was delicious, service was fantastic and there's a fun bar on the roof of the hotel with a great view. We'll definitely be visiting Parker & Quinn in the near future. Thumbs up!

  • The menu that wasn't

    Dined on 3/1/2014
    It was a saturday outing to include lunch and a play matinee. We had reviewed menus from different restaurants recommended by Open Table and Parker Quinn had a selection of salads that sounded appealing. When we arrived we were handed a very limited menu with only one salad choice. None of the items we'd hoped to have we're available. Shared a soup and sandwich which was awful. The cheese sandwich had no cheese. Parker & Quinn is off our list of choices.

    The atmosphere of the place is very cute and noise manageable. The food is just alright, nothing special, which is common in midtown. It would have been fine overall if towards the end the manager didn't rush us out after the meal quoting "the real estate, you know". Very weird experience. Especially the way she was trying to fix a situation: as we were heading out of the place, she was offering us a drink! On the way back to the office...should we get it in a sippy cup? Meh.

    This place is convenient if you are staying at The Refinery Hotel. The menu has some good items but not a lot of variety. I have been here before and the service is always just ok. Today I sat at the bar and waited 13 minutes before someone noticed me and waited on me, and it wasn't busy. The burger was good and I added brussel sprouts and bacon bits, which were decent.

    Went to Parker & Quinn on a cold Sunday evening after a 3 PM matinee. The place was almost empty. We ordered the spiced butternut soup, a little thick but nicely flavored, and the tomato bacon bisque to start. The waiter steered my husband away from the chicken. He ordered the Arctic char with a side of broccoli rabe, described on menu with wild mushrooms, brussel sprout leaves and fingerlings. There was one wild mushroom piece, a few brussel sprout leaves and 2 thin slices of fingerlings on the plate. I ordered the tagliatelle, good, not great and a small serving for a main course (and I ordered and was charged for the entree portion). Our waiter was very attentive and he gets an A+. But I would not go out of my way to go back here.

    I mean... So good. I'm a wishy-washy vegetarian as is (I really love chicken), am a grad student on a budget, and wasn't really in the mood for fish, so I chose seething familiar from the menu somewhat haphazardly. From the very first bite of the chicken to the last spoonful of warm butternut squash risotto, pure and unmitigated joy. So... So... Good. Chris, our server, was attentive and came with recommendations, and was not a helicopter (which is the worst). My first time at P&Q, certainly not my last.
